Rick James was one of the most popular artists on the Motown label during the late 1970s and early 1980s. James was famous for his wild brand of funk music and his trademark braids, sporting them well before the style was popularized. As time went on, James was given the unofficial title The King of Punk-Funk. In later life, James' legal problems relating to drug abuse received much publicity.
